PKK “will soon be ended” - Turkish PM

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım said Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) separatists had been damaged beyond repair and their activities would soon be brought to an end within Turkey.

“The PKK terror organisation has no chance of recovering again,” Yıldırım told a gendarmerie anti-terror meeting.

“There is now very little (time) until the terror organisation’s domestic activities are brought to an end.”

Yıldırım emphasised that Turkish security forces would continue working throughout the winter in order to prevent the group from regrouping and re-emerging in the spring.

“Neither our gendarmes, nor our police, nor our village guards, nor the members of our armed forces have any intention of hibernating,” he said.
